|DJ Set tour by James Lavelle|
|Location||New York, USA|
A DJ set featuring James Lavelle which was broadcast around the world, both in to clubs and online. It is unclear whether Lavelle appeared in New York or at one of the other clubs such as London's The Vibe club as the relevant articles don't make it clear who was where exactly.
Tonight, those cool people at Casio G Shock in Japan are giving the clubbers of London, Paris, Milan and New York the chance to experience something totally unique. Junior Vasquez, friend of Madonna and one of the world's best DJs, will do a two-hour live set from the Twilo club in New York which will be transmitted via satellite to London's The Vibe club on Brick Lane, La Salle Wagram in Paris and The Base in Milan. The reason? G Shock, after creating Baby G, and G Shop, now want to be even more creative with the letter G and have set up the G Club, and G websites. The two websites, www.g-club.net and sister site www.g-shop.net, will provide up to date club and fashion information, with gossipy bits, trendy bits, listings, music reviews and even free tickets to club nights. Tonight's event will also feature DJs James Lavelle, Rennie Pilgrem and DJ Hype. For couch potatoes, the event will be transmitted live on the Internet site from 1am until 3am too. For further information and tickets call 0171-375 3513.
